Program Educational Outcomes
The Computer Science Program has been designed to provide a well-rounded and comprehensive education, with a curriculum offering a broad education in Computer Science combined with a solid foundation in science and engineering fundamentals. In addition, the program has emphasized interaction and communication skills.
At graduation, Computer Science students are expected to possess the following skills:
SO1 The ability to create significant software projects, from analysis to design to implementation and testing.
SO2 A strong foundation in both the software and hardware aspects of computing, as well as the mathematics and science that underlie the discipline.
SO3 A deeper understanding of one or more areas of computer science of their choosing.
SO4 Good written and verbal communications skills.
SO5 The ability to work effectively in teams, as jobs in computer science require large groups of people to work together.
SO6 An appreciation of the societal consequences of technology, including computers, and of the ethical issues that arise with recent technologies.
SO7 The knowledge and skills necessary to obtain employment after graduation or to continue their study of computer science in graduate school.
